Industrial Hygiene Assessments

 

Prometrix Safety Consulting provides industrial hygiene services throughout the United States for clients across general industry, construction, and maritime industries. Industrial hygiene assessments or discovery needs are often – but not always - coupled with safety compliance audits to ensure a comprehensive and robust overall risk assessment.

Industrial hygiene assessment services may involve site evaluations and personnel interviews, employee personal air or noise sampling, surface and bulk sampling of materials, review of written relevant safety and health programs, and employee training on various industrial hygiene topics.

 

Industrial hygiene assessment services are offered as part of proactive assessment to prevent illnesses and/or ensure compliance with OSHA requirements.

Professional Advice:  Although it’s not required, if you engage with a 3rd party OSHA consulting firm such as Prometrix Consulting, insist that the services be performed under attorney-client privilege and at no cost to you (as in free). This will accomplish several purposes:

 

  • Attorney-client privilege reassures company executives that all communications, audit findings, recommendations, and corrective actions are better protected as ‘proprietary and confidential’ from your competitors, the public, and OSHA.

 

  • Attorney-client privilege will remove privacy concerns as a credible objection from engaging outside experts; and

 

  • Such privileges will help foster a robust working relationship and environment whereby deeper and more candid conversations can take place in order to better address and reduce your operational risks.
